Oh it has been such a great experience. Read-A-Thon are awesome and I think I will do it again.
End of Event Meme:
- Which hour was most daunting for you?
Honestly, the most difficult hour was the 20th when I couldn’t keep my eyes open anymore and had to make the decision to go to bed. It was just so difficult but I can only blame myself for mixing books and wine!
- Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year?
There are quite a few books (series) that could keep readers busy for an eternity. Books by J.R.Ward, Gena Showalter & Lara Adrian to name a few.
- Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year?
It is my first experience, and I thought it was perfect.
- What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon?
The cheer-leading was awesome — it was quite inspiring!
- How many books did you read?
I only got to read 1 1/2 books. I am a slow reader and had quite a few interruptions throughout the day. I could have had done better if I wouldn’t have mixed books and wine!
- What were the names of the books you read?
I read Lock In by John Scalzi & Proxy by Alex London (I only read half of Proxy)
- Which book did you enjoy most?
I really loved Lock In by John Scalzi, not just for the read-a-thon but it is perhaps one of my favorite books of the year
- Which did you enjoy least?
I didn’t get through my second book, but I was enjoying it – so I count my read-a-thon a success
- If you were a Cheerleader, do you have any advice for next year’s Cheerleaders?
I think all the cheerleaders did great
- How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you be likely to take next time?
I certainly will participate again, I will however choose shorter books. Perhaps short stories and serials will be more likely to make the list instead of big novels over 300 pages each.
